There are many Florida middle schools to choose from but few focus so intently on the unique needs of the students in this age group.
Saint Edward's Middle School offers a developmentally age-appropriate program of traditional course study. Each member of the Middle School faculty is not only an expert in his or her academic field, but is also aware of the unique intellectual, physical, social and emotional needs of the early adolescent. This diversity allows us to deliver a challenging curriculum in a manner that promotes maximum acquisition of the knowledge and skills necessary for academic success at our Upper School.
While we are a college preparatory school, we understand that knowledge is cumulative and success at earlier levels is requisite for success at later levels, including our Upper School and eventually college.
The Middle School operates on the same two-semester system as the Upper School. Sixth, Seventh and Eighth graders take a full year of each of the core courses in English, history, mathematics, science and foreign language. The curriculum of the Middle School is high school preparatory in nature and follows a carefully planned sequence of courses. All students also take one marking period of art, research, writing and technology, character education/life skills and health. All students participate in athletic and physical education offerings each semester.
The Middle School is committed to 1:1 technology. In fact, each student has a computer as a personal learning tool. Classrooms are equipped with LCD projectors and students have access to many online resources that propel our classrooms beyond our beautiful 26-acre campus in Florida. Middle schools are not simply stepping stones, but bedrocks, opportunities to discover talents and passions that can last a lifetime.
